I know I'll get flamed for this, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if the Cubs make the playoffs before the Sox.
I agree with you that the Cubs at least have a plan. But if I were a Cubs fan, I'd be sick of hearing this "Hope Springs Eternal" stuff. It has been almost 70 years since the Cubs have appeared in a World Series, and there is no way that Theo can put a happy face on that. All of us Chicago fans have heard about rebuiliding efforts and how many have failed? This one can fail, too.
But you may be right about the Cubs succeeding before the Sox do. This organization has shown a complete lack of direction during the past few years.
